Diatoms are one of the most common phytoplankton. They are producers within the food chain. One of their unique characteristics is that they are encased within a cell wall made of silica. Their perfectly symmetrical structure has inspired many artists, designers and architects for many years. This project was made for the exhibition "Diatomeen Formensinn" at the Phyletic Museum Jena, Germany withthe collaboration of fellow conceptual designer and artist Monika Calusinska.
